Principle of Cause-and-Effect

November 30, 2009

I’m learning about this principle. And I learned, after applying this principle, that if you live your day as if it was the last 24 hours of your life, you adopt this mode of “abandon” and “free will” which lets you live happily, without the regular constraints of fear, resignation, and negativity.

Live today, as if it were the last day as the first day of the rest of your life. (That probably didn’t make a lot of sense.) I mean to say, look at today as one day, in neither the past nor the future, whereby you construct your future. Instead of living as the effect of what you have been, live as the cause for a more perfect future. ;]

I now believe it’s very important in life to have a *cosmic* viewpoint… “http://www.hulu.com/watch/63317/cosmos-the-shores-of-the-cosmic-ocean

“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”

Human thought is a live, living organism, constantly changing and evolving…

And it’s always nice, once in a while, to peek at it and observe it as it changes and evolves, and gain a little bit of insight into it’s movements, and further your understanding of the world and yourself.

“In my opinion, I think this song is talking about how holding a grudge and hating somebody does nothing helpful. All it does is just traps you in a prison of sadness and anger. And even if you try to escape that prison by making friends of your enemies, those enemies will just spit on you.”

This goes out to everyone.

No matter where you are in life, in relation to other people, every has their own circumstances.

In life, in relation to love,

You can choose to love a girl.

And if she doesn’t love you, it’s a sad thing.

 

That’s because love is one of the most uncertain things in life. You can love a person but may not be loved in return.

 

If you choose to involve yourself with the endeavor of love, heterosexual [romantic if I may] love that is, you subject your life partially to the element of uncertainty. And you must deal with the consequences. You risk becoming terribly sad upon observing the prospect that this significant other does not love you back, for the chance that that other does love you back and, because of its uncertainty, it makes you even feel better than normal.

 

This is life. You are the choice-maker. You are manning the machine of your life, and it operates based on you. You are the commander of your army of thoughts. This army functions based on how you order them, organize them, train them, and command them.

 

There are certain things you can predict, like how your army will make the offensive or react to the enemy, on the defensive. And there are things you can’t predict, like the weather, and sometimes the strategy that will be employed or the magnitude of the army that will be opposing yours. This is speaking metaphorically that is. This is life.

Life has some certainties but also is subject to a degree of uncertainty depending on what you are specifically referring to.

And

You command your army of thoughts. That is, you control your thoughts, and can relatively certainly predict how they will behave, and how they will react to situations. Though you cannot predict what situations will occur. Thus you base how you want your thoughts to act on past experiences, and when you encounter new experiences you modify your thought patterns to better prepare your for the future.

 

Take this into consideration, as you flow throughout the rest of your life.

(Why are there times when I just can’t believe that I’m still in school and enjoy music so much) — “because you’re led to believe you’re free from work and thus you’re celebrating with petty diversions?”

I don’t believe in Love; I believe in Life.
